Minoring in Twitter: Vegas always wins in airport money prank

the prank

After a somewhat depressing look behind the curtain at the bus problems facing Minor Leaguers last week, we switch gears and present the Las Vegas 51s and their dugout prank that ended up fooling every opportunistic airline traveler who walked by. You know the trick: a player connects a baseball to a fishing line or piece of string and tosses it over the dugout roof, only to pull it back from wide-eyed fans. Take a look:

How many people can say they’ve been publicly pranked by an entire team of New York Mets prospects? But Anthony Seratelli also has a softer side — look at his view of Mt. Rainier from the air, after he was done stealing money from old men:

Minor League Bus Drama of the Week

Last week, we covered the various bus-related issues plaguing the Minors, from shredded tires to missing drivers to seven-hour delays. This week, we heard that Hillsboro’s bus broke down en route to Vancouver, a seven-hour drive on a good day. The Hops got in late and played their game on three hours’ sleep, beating the Canadians, 13-3, on July 22.

The Rancho Cucamonga Quakes’ bus broke down in Bakersfield and the team found the most bad-ass truck ever to haul it away. Seriously, how powerful is that truck that it can carry a bus?

It’s not:
